The oldest motorcycle manufacturer in England, Matchless rolled out its first bikes in 1899 and developed iconic models ridden by the likes of Marlon Brando and James Dean. A research division dedicated to rider safety began designing protective leather and waxed cotton jackets in the 1930s, and their utilitarian style achieved classic status. Today, Matchless renders authentic replicas of these archival designs in updated cuts and premium materials in line with their legacy of quality manufacturing.
